why the president apparently is determined to fight for chuck hagel but was not for susan rice. one thing you can speculate about is that perhaps chuck hagel's views as expressed in recent years are entirely consonant with president obama's and having lost rice, he doesn't want to lose again and he's prepared to go through an arduous confirmation. if these really are president obama's own personal views on how to deal with israel, what to do about the iranian nuclear weapons program or what not to do about it, i think that's very, very troubling and a marker of what the next four years will look like. >> the one that seems of most concern to americans is chuck hagels former position, maybe president obama's position, on israel. >> right. i think hagel has said really remarkable things, things that i think frankly border on outright anti-semitism so that's going to be a major subject of his confirmation hearing. maybe we'll see what used to be called a confirmation conversion where he attempts to recant those statements. he's done that on another subject, his view of gays and lesbian

these nominations such as jack lew and chuck hagel made it clear they were going to adamantly oppose the nominations if he made them. he went ahead and made them. it leads me to think he is trying to put out as many fights as he can put out there and hope he wins half of them and then he would call it a day. it has set up an amazingly ar arched rivalry in washington. >> critics would say the president has nothing to lose he won the second term and he can put out there whatever he wants if he gets it he gets it if he doesn't, he doesn't. meantime issues like the debt ceiling and gun control are he shall issues they say they may act unilaterally on. where does that leave the american people? >> i think those critics who say that about president obama's strategy they are probably right. president obama has a strong hand he has a better hand in washington than republicans do. the problem with things like gun control; in the senate even modern democrats join with republicans. if he tries to do something unilateral with debt ceiling or with guns the fight we are seeing right now and the fi

, congress, whatever. [ applause ] the president nominated chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense. the pick has faced a lot of criticism because of hagel's controversial comments about israel and iran in the past. one of the people speaking out is former mayor ed koch and he said quote quote. frankly i thought there would come a time when he would renege speaking of the president when he conveyed on his support of israel comes a little earlier than i thought it would. it's very disappointing. i believe he will ultimately regret it koch said and it undoubt ltedly will reduce support for him in the jewish community. i don't think he, the president, worries about that now that the election is over thank you may for candor. we should be concerned about this appointment because of chuck hagel's soft attitude toward iran believing we shouldn't apply sanctions we should have unconditional conversations with these terrorists and somehow if we make nice with them they won't build a bomb and point it at everybody but themselves. at the same time, while we are going soft, senator hagel has b

chuck hagel, the same thing. if it wasn't so scary, and so dangerous, we've got chuck hagel going to be the new defense secretary. chuck hagel could not identify hezbollah, hamas or the iranian national guard as terrorists, he also has said, sanctions don't work, all president obama told us all during the campaign was how terrific the sanctions worked and then also told us we shouldn't attack iran. explain to me how you're going to stop them from becoming a nuclear power if you don't use sanctions and take the idea of a possible military attack off the table and what kind of signal sending to iran to select somebody who believes that. basically president obama is signaling them, i don't really believe in the sanctions that much and don't worry we'll never attack you. >> sean: how do you interpret this in a broader picture. we're going through the president or joe biden is talking about executive orders to advance their gun control initiative. we have nancy pelosi saying let's use the 14th amendment let's forget article 1, section 7, congress authorizes spending which was always done. wh
